APPENDIX 



Chart of Klaverns of Existing Klan Organizations, 1964-1966 
Lists of klaverns, or local units nf pvic+i-n«. vu~ 
been compiled on th'e basis of i^^ffiSSdSfflfldS^^ 

The lists do not purport to be all-inclusive. The committee cannot 
assume that its investigation has succeeded in pinpoSevery Se 
klavern established within the years 196^6, the period on Xch!s 
investigation was focused. r wim,u itb 

In view of the 3-year span covered by these lists, it is also obvious 
that some of the klaverns have become dormant or defunct uovlous 

Duplications will be found as a result of the fact that entire klaverns 
have transferred ^egiance from one klan organization to anothe? 
during the years 1964-66 This 5 is true in the State of Mississippi, 
where many klaverns listed as affiliates of the White Knights will also 
be found on lists of klaverns of the United Klans of America, because 
of wholesale defections from the White Knights to the UKA begin- 
ning m the fall of 1964. Furthermore, during 1966, a number of TJKA 
klaverns went oyer to the White Knights. A similar situation exists 
with respect tothe Original Knights of the Ku Klux Klan of Louisi- 
ana and tneUmted Klans organization in Louisiana. 

In those instances in which bank records supplied the sole evidence 
of klan activity m a town or city, it has not always been possible for 
the committee to identify the exact headquarters of a local klan unit. 
Therefore, the committee has in some cases cited as a klavern location 
the town in which klansmen utilized banking facilities.

( To bo road and reread until thoroughly understood by all officers and mombors. Also 

may bo uaod as background material for disouaaions and lectures at local unit meetings. 



Tho purpose and function of this organization is to jULftaerve Christian Civilization, 
It has no othor legitimate reason for existence, nor can any memtur havo any other 
logitimate reason for belonging than to who 1 oho arte dly help carry out this aim. 

The world and all of the people in it are torn between two exactly opposite forces t 
1* The Spiritual Force of Almighty God Championed by our Savior, C hrist , Joaua. 
£. The negative, materialistic force of destruction championed by jjfltBTc 

It is necessary that each and every mombor truly understand tho above before he can 
ever become effective in this organization. It ia necessary that each and every member 
keegji _ccpy of tho Holy Scripture close at hand at all times for frequent, careful and 
PRAYERFUL reference. The Communist Conspiracy absolutely cannot be under stood {and 
thereby successfully opposed) by any man, no natter how well educated he may appear to 
bo, UNTIL that nan has tho FACT fixed dearly in hia mind that when ho is dealing with 
the Communist Conspiracy t ho is dealing with an AGENCY of Satan, which owes all^ of Itc 
apparent successes to on evil, malignant, SUPERNATURAL Force. Until wo all realise tht£ 
we are up .against a SUPERNATURAL Force, againat which our FINITE minds and emotions an! 
abilities are, by themselves, POWERLESS to defeat, wo shall continue to suffer dissappoi: 
monts and defeats again end again. 

Onco, however, that wo can bring ourselves to put our EGO aside and humbly admit to oi 
selves that our FINITE minds, and FINITEemotions,and FINITE abllitioa aro,by thomselv 
incapable of defeating the Communist Conspiracy with itn SUPERNATURAL assist from 
Satan, we will have taken a Tremendous stop forward,' jffa THEN, logically and practical] 
turn and ask for assistance from tho ONE source of SUPERNATURAL POWER that can over- 
come Satan, This ia whore and when we align ourselves with Almighty God, our Creator, 
our Savior, and our Inspiration. Wo do not commit tho popular blasphemy which says : 
"God is on our 3ide B , or "wo are Hie Chosen people". Quite tho contrary, WE have ohopo. 
GOD. Wo -havo .placed ourselves undor His Direction- Wo have become His Finite inotrum v- 
with which, wo ernestly pray, Ho will choose to save Christian Civilization, He is our 
Shepherd, our Foundation, our Strength, without which we will be hopelessly devoured b- 
the Agents of Satan. Let us choose , sirs, let ue meditate soberly and seriously on t'r 
point. Christ has always been our Last Spiritual Hope. He is now become our Last Ron 
for earthly civilization end physical Life as wo havo come to know it under our gov", 
mental system of Equal Justice under Law. It J. a tho Duty of every member to pray a, 
to read his Bible every day»and it is the Duty of the Chaplain of ' eavh and every uni 
to sea that this is being done, and to stimulate tho Spiritual fcwarnesa of all member, 
at all timoa,in order that our feet remain constantly on the Right Path. Our Survi-j*; 
and our Eventual Victory will dopond upon a Constant, Christian aworness. 

Every dn+,wo hear so-called "anti-communists 11 and "wise men" praying aloud for tho 
Almighty to "send us a Leader n , some one who can show us the way out of this Collect! 1 
Horror that we have let ourselves got trapped into. 

Sirs, wo were sent a LEADER some two thousand years age. He was the last True Leader 
that had boon soon upon tho earth since that time. Wo have been rejecting Him, in or-f 
way or another, to a greater or lesser degree, ever since that time. We have NOW conn- 
tho END of tho ROAD. We are NOW, right now, each and every one if us going to begin I 
to LIVE, IN ./ITH anf FOR the Spirit of Christ Jesus in ourselves and our civilized 
brethren about un,and thus purified,without Malice or Vengeance, begin, systematica;" 
to DESTROY the athostic, Satanic agents of communism in our aidat,OR, wo are going 
ooo,bofore our very eyes, our eooiety degenerate into a savage melee of brutal fhuma;,, 
ic animals, snarling and fighting among themselves for the bare necessities of anim, 
existence. 

This is a CHRISTIAN MILITANT Organization. We must, each of us, understand precisely 
what is meant by the combination of those two terms and ACT and govern ourselves 
accordingly. As Christians, wo are disposed to kindness, generosity, affection and 
humility in our dealings with others. Aa MILITANTS , we. are disposed to the use or" 
physical force against our enemioo. How. con wo roconcilo theae two apparently cert..' v 
dictory philosophies, and at tho dams tiio^-uiko pujo that we do not vioSate tho tfvXr 
Law by our actions, which may na held af^xin-t us when we face that Last Court on tr/i 
■D*y of Judgement T The answer, of qaur/io,ia to pur -e I-alice, bitterness and vongea-.- 
fi-om our hearts. To pray ouch day,, for Livino Puidunoo, that our. foot shall remain 
the fjorreot Path , ..and tnat all of our Acts be Uaii's Will working through ourhhum':;,' 
Mlveu hjre upon thij earths • ' 






Hi are all going to faeo tho fact that we ttfcsi n«M and estroy our enemies in wdc;- 
tTsSo our Lives, our Nation, and ou> Chri.tian Civilization, but we must remember .* 
at all times, Consciously and Constantly, that wo are Christian Soldiers, and we must 
V iuet ouraolves with Hftior, as did our forbears of eld. This is not going to bo easy 
:«" do. We are all of us in a highly irritated and excited State of "ind at this time. 
Tho communists in tho governmental administration and their fellow ?«?*"*"■*? *J° 
HUCpTrTdoliberatoly trying to goad us into making mistakes, which they can exploit 
TiLir oolitical advantage. To counteract this, we must keep our heads and got down 
to 35* We must »fSr ttia classic military blunder of permitting the ENEMY to choose 
tho battleground and set the conditions of the battle, -h must design our OWN attack 
TvroPTum and STICK TO IT without distraction lit I 

Sho^ffai™ in our own domestic house have been in turmoil for several months, but we 
can now tnat we have a reasonable chance to achieve a sound and stable government 

unlerou^ new constitution. The entire -success or failure of this «rgul»ti«i of 
unaer our new «»■ individual member, and how well he is going to bo able 

live* and burns in the hearts and minds of each and every member of this order, -ill 
NEVER be destroyed, and THAT 1« ^WWPOg^tj^J at this time* 

The Militant phase of our organisation at tho local IotoI is divided Into Throe Primary 
Branches « Fielae of Work, with almost Infinite subdivisions under them. Those Three 
Primary Branches are, 1. SECURITY , 2. INTELLIGENCE , J. PROPAGANDA. 

When a Local Unit is FIRST, maintaining a high degree of Christian Spirit among *" £ 
its members, and THEN maintaining absolute Secrecy and Military Protection and Security 
in connection with all phases of its work, and THEN maintaining a constant flew of 
iSTELUG^CE n information concerning all phases of enemy activity in ttjtoM^. 
to tho higher headquarters, together with recommendations, and. THEN V»t«jtio.lly 
operating a verbal and printed PROPAGANDA network in their own area, in order to 
convince the average citizen that OUR organization is a necessary and worthwhile asset 
to tho community, while those who oppose us are Dangerous Mlif «£»* jn-ibW 
for all of the trouble in the local area t WHEN, a local unit is doing all of these 
*Mn« ^dlaaintainii* .11 of these phases of our work, Efficiently, Continuously and 
SSUXSK "an be said of tho Officers and Members of that Unit, that thoy 
are TRULY accompli shing the PURPOSE for which this organization was designed. 

Volumes can, and have been written on SECURITY, INTELLIGENCE and PROPAGANDA. We will 
discuss them only briefly here, and each local unit should obtain some of the my 
worthwhile books available on these eubjects. and Local Unit Officers should drill this 
information into the membership at frequent intervals, somo of it at every meeting. 

SECURITY 

SECURITY takes in » 1. The ability of a unit and it* members to remain undootod by 
outsiders. 2. K« ability of a unit to protect its meetings from detection and in tru- 
sion from outsiders. ?. The ability to protect the familica of the membership from 
outside forces. 4, The ability to protect the entire community from outside forces. 
Obviously, only tho first ability is within the graip of a new unit. The other abili • 
ties must be acquired thru skill, discipline and patience. But each unit should start 
to work immediately on acquiring and refining the First. wmcnv 

Lot us start with a few PROVEN rules and see to it that they are STRICTLY 

Observed i 

1. Bo oaroful that you arc not followed in going to and from meetings. Do not park 
large numbers of cars around meeting places. Go in groups in one car or pork 
several block- away and walk. Train yourself to see yourself as . skilled detective 
would see you. Always behave in a normal, average manner. You may ACT foolish in 
pub lie. but you must BE careful. ' . 

2. in recruiting new members, alway* lear» a. much as possible, and make sure that ho 
is strictly reliable before you approach hia. Just boing • "conservative or a 
•segregationist" is not enough. IfE are looking for men who. are Christian, American 
Patriots, to whom all secondary i.sOT-fcTo" SECONDARY. Do not hesitate to ask for 
an investigation en any proposed now member that you do not know, .toon in doubt, 
SCRATCH. A good man can always be brought in later t but a bad one cauaos real 
turmoil. Remember, the men who join you are going to be walking around with jrgw 
Ufn in their hands. Do not object to a good aw Pimply because you have a person*!

/(-. Jrch unit must have one officer designated as Security Officer who shall watch anc 

criticise the othor members for unsound conduct, loose talk or actions, carolossn* . 

etc. ■ The Local Unit Head will demand obedience to security matters at all times foj' 

all Officers ar.d members. 4 schedule of small fines for careless members should to 

set up and unforced at once, 

5, Assume that all telephones are tapped (which they probably are). Learn to talk over 
the telephone in code in short, quick sentences. Talk in such a way that no outside 
could understand the meaning of what you aro saying. Use public phonos. 

6, Always. use deceptive language when sending lo^tcji*, — -fln ..flo±~ai fln letters or any othor 
paper in connection with this. organization, V§IL_I0KILNUOER. J .'rite with a typewrite 
that cannot be traced to you. On very important messages, write with tho message 
enclosed in an envelope after it has been wrapped in carbon paper or tinfoil or soro- 
thing that will short circuit the cute infra-rod reading -machines which our anemic - 
are now using to chock PATRIOTIC (but not communijt) mail. Hover put a return addror 
on a letter unless it is typwritten and completely fictitious* Seal all Joints oil 
the envelope with Scotch tape. Always try to mail letters from as far away from y>.> 
home as possible, another city, if convenient. Each and every membor is required to 
obtain two pairs of gloves. One pair of DARK, choap cotton gloves* and one pair of~ 
high quality rubber gloves. These gloves must be worn at all times when handling 
printed material that ia to be sent out, or when handling any other type of material 
that can be traced by fingerprintd. 

7, Occasionally, organize a systematic mailing campaign to see that certain of our 
enemies start receiving all kinds of "wild" suspicious mail, implicating him in all 
kinda of subversive plots and schemes* This will confuse the postal pimps and heir 
protect our other members* Also, in reverse, you should try to act like you arc a 
"pinko" yourself, who is really against our organisation, and wishes that everybody 
would just bo ^pencoful*. Do this without encouraging anyone else to beliovo this 
way, however. Remember, it is juat as important to TRICK, OQKFUSEJ and DECIEVE ou*- 
enemies as it Is to fight than* Each mombcr must do his share of both. 

6. Keep all records and communications at an abaolute minimum , and carefully hidden, 
and in code, Ko-, p them in such a manner that they can easily and quickly be desti 
Always include .a large number of onemy names on the list of any of our records, so 
that tho list will bo confusing to any outsider. 

Observe the bl Uotd to Know " Rule, This moans that no Officer nor Member should 
have tiny information thiit he does not absolutely have to have in order to perform 
his duty, No member should fool "loft out" because ho is denied such information, 
Instuad, every member should strive to avoid lenov.'ing anything thtt ho does not nocd 
to know, ^sde-rn- tuchniqucs of drugs, hypnotism and brain manipulation have made ii 
impossible for any man to withold information under capture. Our only defense 
against this Is that a mrm cannot toll what he dooa not know* 

All memhers In a local unit should informally segregate themselves into groups 
according to tho "name" of being a patriot that they have in their local community.. 
Under group A would be those who are known to bo MEMBERS by the Public or the Lav.' 
Enforcement Agents, Under group B would those be who are not known to bo members 
but who are known Patriots in their community.. Under group C would bo those who 
are not generally recognised as being patriots in their local community. Under 
group D ere thonc who arc unknown to oven the other members of the? unit except fc; 
tho or.e who JPECIwLLY recruited him. All members of these various informal grouya 
should bo very careful of having any outsido, public contact with numbers who aro 
in a different group than themselves. Each member must CONSTANTLY respect tho Sccree; 
and Security of any other member and never rovoal the identity of any other mn-nbar 

f to another member without Specific Permission on each occasion, 

11. If you are already known to be a member or an outspoken patriot, yen should start 
I righ', away to change your public "image" to that of a person who has become disil 
V usic.-d with tho "right-wing" and the "conservative" movement in general. You mu - 

Sjj*. OAi" Jiful not to discourage anyone else while you are doing thia, however , 

12, Eo not writ 6, patriotic letters to magazines or newspapers urior your own narrn, It 
O.K. to writo if you havo tho ability, but DO NOT sign a corrbot name or address. 
Use a typewriter at all times. Never ..'RITE a lottor in handwriting. 

\% Each local unit rust maintain a squad of at leaat 8 well-armed men, each man wit 

miniaum of 50 rounds of ammunition, Thia squad should should hike, drill, and bL;*.T" 
together frequently and become proficient as an infantry squad. This ?quad will hv 
the guard unit for the meetings, 

14. A reserve s,;oply of arms and ammunition should bo cached or buried in coveral pic*' .

com&s, xho unit would not bo disarmed. Tho^Jjlue ribbon" weapons of tho unit mun- 1 
always be icept in a secure and handy place. The squad should have umong its arms

INTELLIGENCE 

INTELLIGENCE consists of tho gathering and transmission of all information concern- 
ing the Enemy, or weaknesses or leaks in our own organization. In a properly admini stor- 
ed Local Unit each member will be designated to watch and turn in regular reports coa- 
ro/ning the habits and activities of ONE certain enemy. In addition, all members are 
charged to be on the alert at all times for any other additional information. *J1 au ■■'. 
information must be written up and turned in at each mooting to tho Local Investigator., 
(or, in his absence, to the Investigative Secretary, who the Investigator will desigr: 
as his clerical assistant. The Investigator is charged with the responsibility of kee 
ing this information, but he must have a Private Secretary to assist him in tho orderl; 
arrangement of Investigative Data, The Local Investigator will maintain a filo on 
each of the rogular members of the Enemy camp, and an additional file for general infor- 
mation and activity involving tranYi^nV enemies. Tho local Investigator will transmit 
all timoly information at once to the province Investigator together with any comments 
or remarks concerning the urgency of tho matter to bo covered. Also, the vote of the 
Local Unit concerning tho wishes of the Local Romberg regarding any Militant activity y 
must be transmitted thru the office of the province Investigator to tho higher head- ' 
quarters. All members must realize that ALL current information concerning communis-, 
activity must be turned in at once. It must also be realized that this is not a goe-iv 
society whero enemy activity ia discussed back and forth until it is cither worn out *>.;* 
the members havo become so excited that they are ready to form a lynch party. Each 
report is to be written up PBIOB to the me ting by tho individual member. After all 
reports havo bei,n turned in, any member who desires some discussion on hi3 report w-/ 
so request the Head, who will order the Report road and discussod. ALL reports nus u -■ 
written up and turned in before they aro discussed on tho floor of tho meeting. 
Investigation is a 24hr. Process, The otate Executives must know what is going on in 
tho Local it rcu3 without having to depend upon the newspapers and radio. All of tho 
Local units mU3t gather and feed this information constantly and continuously. Car 
tags, owncra names, car descriptions, physical descriptions of persons, photographs of 
communist agents who aro in governmental office, information on pimps hiding behind 
authority, armament, dress, habits, technique, etc., etc., etc.* As long as %, Local 
Unit ia functioning it will bo expected to pour out a constant stream of Information. 
Local units must not become discouraged if action appears to bo delayed. Fighting 
communists is a slow, necessarily "careful, deadly business. Hasty action will lead to 
either tho bastille or the cemetary. Reme mber , AL'./AYS, we are in this war to ;7IN i-.- 
not_j,ust^ to. EIGHT it. Continuous, current, correct "information is VITAL to the succ„. s 
of this organization. KEEP SEEDING IT IN 11 ill.

PROPAGANDA 

PROPAGANDA is the weapon of modern war which our organization usoa to convince thi 
i public that wo are all good, and that those who oppose us, or criticise us, or attempt 
to interfere with our activities in any way are all BAD, and sre dangerous cnomioa of 
.the Community. Jo must always keep the public on our side. As long as they aro on our 
i a^do, we can just about do anything to our enemies with impunity. If the public can be ' 
turned against ua, our most Christian Acts will bo made to app. car wrong by our Satan :-.:. 
Encmios of the Established Press* Keeping the Public on OUR side, and AGAINST our 
enemios is tho Vital TaBk of the Propaganda Dep't in each Local Unit. Our most '" 1 
important propaganda instruments at this timo are Underground Newspapers. They aro j'lf 
as valuable in this war as bullets, and our Dnemio3 are actually more afraid of them 
than bullets. There are throe ways that wo can doatroy an athiest or a traitor in th< 
community. They arc: 1. jocially, 2. Economically, J. physically. Tho weapon of 
Propaganda can" accomplish the first two in nearly all casos, and it should proceed fa <\\ 
follow up tho action in the Third Case, if practical. The I/ill and Capability of t. 
Liberals, Comsymps, Traitors, Atheists and Communist a t o rosft at^and subvert Christian 
American principles MUST BE DESTROYED. This is our Sacred Task. If our enemiejj can '1><3 
humiliated and driven out of the Community by Propaganda, wo 11 enough. If they 
continue to resist, thoy must bo physically destroyed before they con damage our Chr? ; J 
ian Civilization further, and destroy us. This is plainly and simply, SELF DEFENSE. ' 
The public is now ready to accept this fact. Our Propaganda efforts must got them to 
accept it. The State Organization will, from timo to time, publiah and distribute a 
State Newspaper, and will assist Local Units in getting startod in their own Local 
Production of printed matter. Each Local Unit must have tho capability of ./SITING, 
PRTNTING and DISTRIBUTING thoir own Propaganda, The Local Propaganda must novar be 
identified with tho Classic Name of the Organization. Bach Local Unit will havo its 
own name for its nowapapor, and it will bo sympathetic in tone to our organization, b vit } 
will bo ■ Independent ■ IN NAME. The name of each Local Publication should bo well L , 
thought out in order to inspire tho aonao of Thrill and Mystery in tho average reader '> 
Spend a lot of time on tho Kamo and Banner of your Local Publication, This Is propac; . 
da in itaolf. Tho materials which aro nocossary to oporato a propaganda department xn 
a local unit are a typewriter, mimeograph machine, and supplies. All of this must ua 
obtained in such a manner that it cannot bo traced. About k or 5 men in the unit shoui 
bo assigned to thia work, usually under tho Ritual and Locturo Officers, and tho detail 
of tho actual operation should bo unknown to the othor members. The composing and 
printing of Propaganda require skill, but are, in thomoolvos, not particularly danger-

Mailing is probably tho safest, although it is expensive and should not bo roliad 
uron entirely, i-iail distribution is accomplished by preparing a mailing liat in advarrc 
oT icoplc vrho are known to bo sympathetic to our cause and who will distribute tho cori 
■:o ; .cs when they receive thorn, ALSO, on this samo list, should be included a substantia L 
i.ite'hcr of the enemy in order to protect our aympatlyzers from being pinpointed and i-'.cn- 
'iified thru the Postal Dep't. In order to speed things up and avoid a long typing list 
for each issuo, tho mailing list should bo cut on a stencil, and about [>0 copies run off 
One of these list copies can be cut up for each isaue and pasted on the envelopes for thf 
addresses. The return address on oach envelope (if any) should bo the rubber- stamped 
natao of some long-deceased Patript such as J. Single-ton Mosby. T* Jackson, R.E. Loo, G, 
Jaghington, etc. The bust PLACES to sand copios for distribution are Cafos, llowstands, 
Barber Shops, Service Stations, Hotels, Tap Sooaa. ote. If you havo a college near youi 
area, find out the naraos of some of tho "good boys", and see that they got plenty of 
copies* One good, safe method of distribution ie to stash a bundle of copiog in a hidd"' 
place with a couple of bucks in it. Then call some one whom you think will bo interoatc 
in earning tho fee, and toll them to go pick them up and put them out* If ho does O.K. 
you can give him some repeat business. Each member needs to achenio constantly for now 
ways and method a of distribution* Tho method must be changed often, bocauso our onom:. .. 
are going to bo laying traps all tho timo. As soon aa you have a distribution method 
down pat, you had bettor start changing it bocauso it is getting OBSOLETE. It cannot b- 
overemphasized to much that tho DISTRIBUTION of Underground Propaganda 1IU3T bo kept 
SEPARATED from those who are writing and printing the material. The onomy will spend 
tremendous off'orts to track down the source of propaganda, and ho must bo frustrated 
from so doing. Bo careful that your supplies are not being checked and observed. This is 
a dangerous point in the operation. Try to buy supplioa in large enough quantities to 
whoro you can oporato for long poriods of time without buying any more, Try to buy supp- 
lies out of town or out of State. Always wear gloves when working with printed aatoria~ . 
DOIT'T GET CAUGHT III Tho posting of Underground Material on Public Bulletin Boards and 
in Public Places has a wonderful effect on Morale and tho Spirit of the Members and the 
Citizens. Always try to cover Bulletin Boards if tho riak ie not too groat. Propagand. 
is tho ono weapon that we have at hand today that can bo successfully used against tho 
onomy in AG3ES3IVE fashion. If wo will uao it properly, we can force him to fight on 
our terms, rather than we having to fight on hi a. It is possible that wo can use this 
weapon into goading our enemy into making mistakes. If wo can begin to do this, consist- 
ently enough, wo can do f oat him. Uhon propaganda is properly used, it actually diatjrbf 
tho onomy more than the killing of his agitators. Scientific communist a fear tho wcapor. 
of Patriotic Propaganda mora than any other, Wo must use this woapon constantly and 
efficiently against our enemies in order to keep tho pub'ic on our side. Tho public bub' 1 
always be made to feel that '.IK are tho ones who aro doing tho GOOD work* and that all 
those who oppose us. aro foul traitors, scoundrols and blackguards. Wo must never givo 
the enemy an ovon break. This is a Life and Death struggle, .h must strive at all tiarx^. 
to^broak and dostray our enemies, while maintaining good relations with tho public. %:: 
long'aa'wo havo the public on our side, wo can handle our ononios any way that wo pi a* 
but if our propaganda fails, and our enemies turn the public away from ue, THEY will Vt, 
able to slaughter us. The most effective trick of propaganda that wo can use ia aetua, 
a truc_ono at this timo, '.Jc must constantly appear as the Honorable Uhdordog : David 
Goliath, Daniel in tho Lions Don, Tho Cold and Hungry Continentals at Valley Forge, tj',. 
but wo must never lot tho Spirit of tho Underdog depross us. Actually, wo are not red); 
tho Underdog, if wo are aligned with Almighty God, although from tho purely 
Materialistic standpoint, wo aro literally, overwhelmed* Propaganda, of course, is 
based on tho materialistic standpoint, which, it is sad to say, is about all that tho 
"general public" appears to be able to understand. 

Tho importance of Propaganda in this struggle simple cannot bo over emphasized. If wo 
can mould and maintain favorable public opinion, we can attain our objective. Ood 
God Willing, If wo permit our enemies and opponents to convince the public that THEY 
are Good, and UK aro Bad, we will eventually lose, regardless of how many of the onecy 
that wo kill. Every member must understand thia throughly, [Tew lot's got off it and on

[Burrel White Exhibit No. 1 — January 13, 1966] 

Imperial Executive Obdeb 

Date May 3, 1964. 
To : All Officers and Members. 

From : Forthcoming Enemy attack and countermeasures to be used in meeting 
same. 

THIS ORDER WILL BE BEAD TO OR BY AND UNDERSTOOD BY EVERY 
MEMBER OF THIS ORGANIZATION 

It is absolutely necessary that each and every member of this organization 
stand fast and remain calm at this time ; while he is working deliberately to pre- 
pare himself and his unit for effective combat against the enemy. 

The military and political situation as regards the enemy has now reached the 
crisis stage. Our best students of enemy strategy and technique are in almost 
complete agreement that the events which will occur in Mississippi this summer 
may well determine the fate of Christian Civilization for centuries to come. 

This organization is the physical Spear upon which the enemy will either 
impale himself and perish, or sweep aside, then to proceed almost unhindered in 
his evil work of destroying civilization. The manner in which we conduct our- 
selves and use our strength this summer will determine which of these fates our 
Nation will follow. 

This is indeed an awesome and critically responsible position in which we now 
find ourselves. Every member must Soberly and PRAYERFULLY face this 
Responsibility, and draw his strength from the Spiritual Source which tells us, 
deep in our hearts, that our Cause is truly Just. 

It must be emphasized that our Cause is far from hopeless. The enemy.'it is 
true* appears to have victory within his grasp, but he is vacillating at this very 
moment when he should be closing it His leadership is not as united as it should 
be, and there is conflict and dissention [sic] in his ranks. His naked and brutal 
methods are coming into more complete exposure every day and he is losing 
public support. He must achieve his victory soon or lose the initiative to our side. 
If this should happen, he is doomed, and his leaders know this. Our task now is 
to delay and frustrate him at the very brink of his triumph. 

This summer, within a very few days, the enemy will launch his final push for 
victory here in Mississippi. This offensive will consist of two basic salients, 
which have been designed to envelope [sic] and destroy our small forces in a 
pincer movement of Agitation, Force by Federal Troops, and Communist 
Propaganda. 

The two basic salients are as follows, listed in ONE-TWO order, as they will 
be used : 

1. Massive street demonstrations and agitation by Blacks in many areas at 
once, designed to provoce White militants into counter-demonstrations and open, 
pitched street battles, resulting in civil chaos and anarchy to privide [sic] an 
"EXCUSE" for: 

2, A decree from the Communist authorities in charge of the National Govern- 
ment, which will declare the State of Mississippi to be a Stae [sic] of open 
revolt, with a complete breakdown of Law and Order, and declaring Martial 
Law, followed by a massive occupation of the State by Federal Troops, with all 
known Patriotic Whites placed under Military Arrest. If this Martial Law is 
imposed, our homes and our lives and our aims will pass under the complete 
control of the enemy, and he will have won his victory. We will, of course, resist 
to the very end, but our chance of Victory will undoubtedly end with the imposi- 
tion of Martial Law in Mississippi by the Communist Masters in Washington. 

Our situation calls for the highest degree of combined intelligence and 
courage, combined with a sincere, Christian Devotion, which Christian Soldiers 
have ever been called upon to demonstrate. We can not permit ourselves even 
one mistake in combating the enemy this summer. All of our actions must be 
disciplined, precise, courageous and intelligent. There is no margin for error. 

When the first waves of Blacks hit our streets this summer, we must avoid, 
open daylight conflict with them, if at all possible, as private citizens, or as 
members of this organization. Wo should join with and support local police and 
duly constituted law-enforcement agencies with Volunteer, LEGALLY DEPU- 
TIZED men from our own ranks. We must absolutely avoid the appearance of a 
mob going into the streets to fight the Blucks. Our first contact with the troops of 
the enemy in the streets mIiou Id hens LEGALLY-DEPUTIZED Law enforcement

officers. It must ALSO be understood at this point that there are many different 

local police situations. Where we find corrupt and cowardly and Police, 

obviously, our members cannot submit to their control, but we should still try 
to work with them at arms length in every reasonable way possible to avoid 
being labelled as outlaws. _ 

IN ALL CASES, however, there must be a SECONDARY group of our mem- 
bers, standing back away from the main area of conflict, armed and ready to 
move on very short notice who are not under the control of anyone but our own, 
Christian officers. This secondary group must not be used except in clear cases 
where local law enforcement and our own Deputized, Auxiliary [sic] First 
Groups are at the point of being overwhelmed by the Blacks. Only if it appears 
reasonably certain that control of the streets is being lost by the Established 
forces of Law can the Secondary Group be committed. Once committed, this 
Secondary Group must move swiftly and vigorously to attack the Local head- 
quarters of the enemy, destroy and disrupt his leadership and communications 
(both local and Washington) and any news communication equipment or agents 
in the area. The action of this Secondary group must be very swift and very 
forceful with no holds barred. The attack on the Enemy headquarters will relieve 
the pressere [sic] on the First group in the streets and as soon as this has been 
done, the Second group must prepare to withdraw out of the area. They will be 
replaced by another Secondary group standing at Eeady, It must be understood 
that the Secondary group is an extremely swift and extremely violent Hit and 
Bun group. They should rarely be in action for over one-half hour, and under 
no circumstances for over one hour. Within two hours of their commitment they 
should be many miles from the scene of action. The local law enforcement agen- 
cies and the first group should then find it fairly simple to restore local order 
and control the local situation. The enemy should be completely confused when 
he loses his headquarters and his leadership. 

This Secondary group must be used only under the EMERGENCY conditions 
herin [sic] stated. We must cooperate with our Law enforcement officials, but 
we must never place ourselves entirely at that disposal, nor under their complete 
control. We must always remember that while Law enforcement officials have a 
"JOB" to do, we, as Christians, have a Responsibility, and have taken an OATH 
to preserve Christian Civilization. May Almighty God grant that their 'MOB" 
and our OATH never come into conflict; but should they ever, it must be clearly 
understood that we can never yield our principles to anyone, regardless of his 
position. RESPECT FOR CHRISTIAN IDEALS CANNOT YIELD TO 
RESPECT FOR PERSONS NOR STATUTES AND PROCEDURE WHICH 
HAVE BEEN TWISTED BY MAN AWAY FROM ITS ORIGINAL DIVINE 
ORIGIN. Remember what the Master said regardin [sic] the rightuseness [sic] 
of the Scribes and the Pharisees and be guided accordingly. We must all 
throughly [sic] understand this Important Principle and keep it clearly in mind 
when we are dealing with officialdom. 

When the Black waves hit our communities we must remain calm and think 
in terms of our INDIVIDUAL enemies rather than our MASS ENEMY. We 
must roll with the MASS punch which they will deliver in the streets during 
the day, and we must counterattack the INDIVIDUAL leaders at night. In our 
night work any harassment which we direct against the MASS of the Enemy 
should be of a minor nature and should be primarilly [sic] against his equip- 
ment (transportation and communication) rather than the PERSONS of the 
MASS enemy. Any Personal attacks on the enemy should be carefully planned 
to include only the leaders and prime white collaborators of the enemy forces. 
These attacks against these selected, individual targets should, of course, be as 
severe as circumstances and conditions will permit. No severe attacks should be 
directed against the general mass of the enemy because of the danger of hurting 
some actually innocent person. The leaders, of course, are not innocent, and they 
should be our prime targets, but the innocent must be protected. 

A great deal of attention should be given toward detecting those enemy agents 
who bomb, burn and kill their own homes, churches and people in order to pro- 
vide a sympathetic base for their National Propaganda Machine. These bomb- 
ings and killings are always blamed on our side, but it is the Insane Communist 
agitators themselves who are doing it. If we could catch them at it we could 
score a nice victory. Stay alert. 

We must use all of the time which is left to us in these next few dnys preparing 
to meet this attack. Weapons and ammunition must be accumulated and .stored ; 
squads must drill; Propaganda equipment must be set up ready l<> roll ; counter-

attack maps, plans and information must be studied and learned; radios and 
communications must be established ; and a Solemn, determined Spirit of Chris- 
tian Reverence must be stimulated in all members. 

May Almighty God grant that our arms be guided to success in this, our 
greatest trial.

very little co:;t. It should be bourne an mind that many of our

With his normal use and enjoyment of those facilities will annoy 
, and grcutly disturb hia operations. 



All members should be caroful not to get into a pattern or overdo any particular - 
form of harassment, because effective counts rise a sure a will alwaya bo set up against 
regular patterns of harassment. The harassment program should bo aystamatic,but not 
of a regular pattern. 

Tho uao of sympathetic outsiders to engage in harassment ia a technique that haa 
many .advantages. liany persons who are not qualified to bo mombero for ono reason or 
another con be fctiaulated into becoming effective harassers without ever knowing that 
they arc working for this organization. This also helps to confuse ths enemy inveoti- 
gators who can ne7or be cure just who or what io behind any particular act of haraaa- 
ment. Care must be used in handling outsiders, but they can provide valuable assistance 
without breaching secrecy if they aro properly, approached ahdhandled. 

It oust always be rer.eabored that ours ia a Nocturnal Organization. Vte work boat ■ 
at night and our greatest victories will be achieved at night. Cameras do not work ao - 
well at night. \fe must harass the enemy at night , and , in general have littla or 
nothing to do with him in the daytime. Ue must stay out of daytime street fights and 
demons-iiations if at all possible. We must remember that tho communists who are dir- 
ecting the agitators want us to engage in pitched battles in the streets so that thoy 
can declare partial Law. Ue must 3tand at tho Ready during demonstrations in daylight 
hours and be prepared to move at a momenta notice, but wo must try and support the reg- 
ular Law enforcement authorities aa disciplined assistants , rather than as a unit 
operating entirely on our own. Of courae, this does not mean that if the regular Law 
enforcement units can not or will not bring the enemy under control and safeguard the 
comunity from their brutal savagery, we will not then oppenly take tha fiels of bat- 
tle in tho streets. This , however , should be only as a last resort , if it becomes 
necessary the chances of Saving this Nation and achieving e ventual victory over the 
Enemy will.be very very slim. ;/e muat fight ou enemies , but we must avoid tho 
streets and we tuot avoid the daylight. 

Harassment should always bo executed in auch & way that little or no risk io taken 
by our aide. It should be approached from the atandpoint that while only a little may 
be accompli shod, practically nothing is risked. Always strive to make a "profit" in 
every contact with the enemy. That is , try to make hia damage far greater than aura 
when the final bill iz totaled. 

The prims purpose of harassment which should be kept in mind at all times is that 
of worrying the enemy into making a nistaka. Harassment should rarely aim at achiev- 
ing a solid victory by itself, but only aim at producing a situationwhoroby the enemy '■ 
may be provoked into a weak position where a victory can then be acored by our aide. 

Whenever an encoy is being harassed he muat bo carefully watched for counter attacks* 
When ho makes these counter attacks, the authorities should bo brought in immediately 
to blame and prosecute him for the entire affair. 

Harassment is done to cause tho enemy trouble. It should not bo dons if the situation 
and circuaatnncoa aro such that it ia very likely to cause our aide trouble,

WE, THE UNITED KLANS OF AMERICA,

SOLEMNLY DECLARE TO ALL MANKIND: that 
the principle and spirit of Klankraft will at all 
time be dedicated in thought, spirit and affection 
to our Founding Fathers of the Original Ku Klux 
Klan organization in the year 1866, and active

to their predecessors in the years (1915 & 16). 

WE DO FURTHER DECLARE TO THE 
WORLD: 'that our original Prescript used as the 
governing law of the Ku Klux Klan, during the 
period of its former activities, and all official 
titles, mannerisms, usages and things therein 
prescribed, have not been abandoned by us; but 
is Held in Esteem as dedication, all of these, 
together with designs of paraphernalia, regalia, 
flags, banners, emblems, symbols, or other in- 
signia and things prescribed or previously used 
by or under the authority of the Ku Klux Klan, are 
the property of the Ku Klux Klan under and by 
virtue of its name of Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, 
and are held sacred by us as a precious heritage, 
which we shall jealously preserve, forever main- 
tain and valiantly protect from profanation.

[Sam Bowers Exhibit No. 4 — February 1, 1966] 

WASP, Inc. 

(A Christian, Non-Profit Organization Dedicated to the Christian- American 

Heritage) 

A great confusion exists today in the minds of many people regarding the 
Jewish problem in America. The national press is doing everything that it can 
to cover the truth regarding this situation. In order to stop this confusion, and 
as a public service to all Americans, WASP, Inc. has issued the following bul- 
letin which outlines the problem, and clearly defines the organizational position 
with respect to the problem. 

To begin with, we must first understand the word "Jew" before we can under- 
stand the problem. The word, Jew, is correctly used only in connection with those 
who were members of a monotheistic sect which existed in Palestine prior to, 
and only shortly after the first coming of the Christ, Jesus some two thousand 
years ago. The modern, world-wide, international cartel which uses the name, 
"Jew", attempts to cloak itself in the garb of this ancient, long dead, theological 
system, but those who are affiliated with this modern cartel are completely 
materialistic and deny the true, Spiritual principles upon which the worship of 
God must be based, in accordance with the First Commandment. 

The foundation of Christianity lies in the ancient Hebrew Law and the 
Teachings of its Prophets. That Law and Teachings actually and clearly foretold 
and acurately [sic] described the coming of the Christ, thereby binding all true 
Jews to Christ when he appeared. From this it is very simple to see that, in the 
true religious sense, there is no such thing today as a real Jew. A person who 
rejects Christ cannot claim to, be a true Jew, because in rejecting Christ, he 
thereby rejects his own teachings in over 300 instances ; the 53 Chapter of Isaiah 
being only one of many clear-cut examples. 

The condition of the Temple business during the First Ministry of the Christ, 
Jesus was remarkably similar to that which exists today in most of the ornate 
palaces we call "churches". Then, as today, the religion business had become 
so professional in nature, and had come so completely under the control of a 
well-established hierarchy, that no one except the completely innocent and those 
with a vested interest in the Temple business took it seriously. When Christ 
refused to collaborate with the professional priesthood and exposed their frauds 
right and left, they, in order to protect their political machine, were forced to 
"eliminate" Him, thereby exposing their hypocrisy and atheism to the innocent, 
true members of their eongrgations [sic]. 

After the Crucifixion and Ressurrection [sic], the true, sincere Jews repented 
and became Christians. Since the period immediately following the Original 
Ministry there have been no true Jews. All true Jews became Christians. Those 
who did not become Christians were not Jews to begin with, but only materialistic 
atheists hiding under the cloak of the Temple. The coming of Christ literally 
seperated [sic] the sheep from the goats. Under the Ministry of the Christ, Jesus, 
the real Jew found his Messiah and the fraud "Jew" was exposed. A true Jew 
could not deny Christ without denying himself, for Christ was the fulfillment of 
the Ancient Jewish Religion. 

Turning now to the mongrelized and vicious aggregation of those who call 
themselves "Jews", and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan, we approach 
the heart of our problem. The people who compose this brotherhood of sin are, 
in general, a curious admixture of East and West, and, like most mongrelized 
peoples, exhibit the worst characteristics of each and both. The racial background 
of these people is not primarily Semetic [sic] as is commonly advertised, but is 
made up of lines derived largely from the savage Mongol and Tartar masses 
which were a constant threat to Western Europe during the Middle Ages. The 
home area of this unholy band centers in the area between the Caspian and the 
Black Seas, in the southern part of what is now known as the Soviet Union. They 
are known as "Khazars" in their own district. Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, and most 
of the other Bolshevik leaders sprang from these fanatical people of savage 
origin, as have most of those who control the large banking and brokerage houses 
in the U.S. such as Kuhn, Loeb, Warburg, Meyer, etc. Representatives [sic] of 
this Satanic Horde have suceeded [sic] in gaining control over the money and 
credit system of the entire world. One of their most capable represenatives [sic], 
Nathan Rothschild, once said : "Let me issue the money and control the credit 
of a nation, and I care not who writes its Laws."

The Supreme Tragedy of modern times is that these people have been permitted 
to gain financial control over America. The good-natured, Christian tolerance of 
the Anglo-Saxon American has been exploited into accepting these people as 
normal members of a Christian Society. Free Enterprise and Private Capitalism 
have made America great but the excesses of these vampires have brought her 
to chaos. Everyone likes to make money, but to the savage Kike, money reacts 
in the same manner as does alchohol [sic] to an Alchoholic [sic]. He is a fanatic 
about it. He is ruled by it* He must have more and more of it to sustain his lust. 
He has no pride of [sic] self respect, no country, no racial identity, not even a 
hemisphere to which he can be a native, so he must feed his savage ego by ex- 
ploiting Christians and destroying Christian Civilization. Truly, it can be said 
that these unfortunate mongrels of East and West are the Children of Satan. 

WASP, Inc. is a truly Christian and Benevolent Organization. We strive to 
avoid criticism and controversy among all peoples wherever possible, but we are 
very strict about our American Nation and our Christian Heritage. WASP, Inc. 
takes the position in regard to the people described on the revers [sic] side of 
this bulletin that they must release their stranglehold on America voluntarily, or 
be pried loose forcibly. True Christian, American men are not going to submit to a 
program of destruction and slavery under the disguise of "tolerance" or "human- 
itarianism*'. Self defense is the right of all men under all honorable conditions. 
As we have clearly shown, these people do not represent a relegion [sic]. They 
are sustained only by a Satanic lust, thru the manipulation of international 
finance, to rule and destroy Christian Civilization. WASP, Inc. does not intend 
to persecute these people, neither does it intend to see them rule America. Like 
the man said a long time ago: Liberty or Death! 

Note: 

If you are a public spirited citizen of America, we would appreciate it very 
much if you would pass this bulletin around among your friends or post it on any 
convienient [sic] bulletin board. By so doing you will be rendering a very impor- 
tant service to your country and to Christianity. 

Thank you, 

WASP Inc.

To Each and Every Citizen of the Invisible Empire, Knights 
of the Ku Klux Klan, My Cordial Greetings: 
To You I speak, Oh, Noble Klansmanl 

The language of symbolism is the most beautiful, the 
most expressive and the most impressive of any language 
known to mankind. Who can read the story of Noah's 
Ark without thinking of the church; or the story of the 
scape goat, the brazen serpent or the feast of the Passover 
without thinking of the Christ who takes away all our in- 
iquities and delivers us from the bondage of sin? 

In the sublime ceremonies of Klankraft, I take it that 
we use seven significant symbols, each of which conveys 
and inculcates a very beautiful lesson, and emphasizes 
a great Klan principle, when the language of symbols is 
properly understood. They are, in the order of their im- 
portance; The Bible, the Cross, the Flag, the Sword, the 
Water, the Robe and the Hood. 

Not many Klansmen hove ever thought of these common- 
place things as having any special significance, or as be- 
ing especially expressive of fundamental Klan principles. 
Whether the founder of the Klan had this idea in mind or 
not, we do not know; but we do know that the symbolical 
meaning of these things makes a wonderful impression of 
Klansmen, and gives a most surprising emphasis to the sa- 
cred, and sublime principles of Klankraft. 

Everywhere we have lectured on this great subject and 
explained the meaning of these symbols, men have listened 
with an intense wonderment, saying afterwards: "We have 
never heard it-like that before. That is wonderful, beauti- 
ful and strangely gripping. I want a copy of the explana- 
tion." 

As we have no copyright on it, and seek to contribute 
our small bit to the success of our great Order, we are 
giving you the benefit of our ideals, with the sincere and 
unselfish hope that It will helpevery Klansman who reads 
it robe a better Klansman, and have a higher, nobler and 
holier regard for, and opinion of the EMPIRE of CHIVAL- 
RY, HONOR, INDUSTRY, PATRIOTISM and LOVE.

THIS BOOK DIVINE signifies that there is a GOD. No 
sane man of reasonable intelligence can look upon this 
sacred volume without thinking of GOD as its author, 
righteousness as its aim, and eternal life as its end. It is 
a Constant reminder that GOD is OUR FATHER, LIFE is 
our opportunity, and HEAVEN is our HOME. It reveals 
the way of life, and the c«use of death. It is a LAMP un- 
to our feet, a light unto our pathway, and the only sure 
guide to right living. It is the book of books and reveals

the only TRUE GOD. 

in a Klavern you will always find this wonderful book 
opened at the rwleffh chapter of Rorr.ans. This is the most 
practical and the most complete chapter in the whole Bi- 
ble on CHRISTIAN- living. It is a constant reminder of the 
tenets of the CHRISTIAN RELIGION, and is a KLANS- 
MAN'S LAW OF LIFE. Every Klansman should read it the 
first thing every morning and endeavor to live by it during 
the day. "I BESEECH YOU THEREFORE BRETHREN BY THE 
MERCIES OF GOD", that you follow its teachings. 

the en 



Out of the wonderful story of the sacred pages of this 
old BOOK DIVINE comes the sad, sweet story of CAL- 
VARY'S rugged but HOLY CROSS. This old cross is a 
SYMBOL of SACRIFICE and SERVICE, and a sign of the 
CHRISTIAN RELIGION. Sanctified and made holy near- 
ly nineteen centuries ago by the suffering and blood of 
fifty million martyrs who died in the most holy faith, it 
stands in every Klavern of the U.S . Klans, Knights of the 
Ku Klux Klan as a constant reminder that CHRIST is our 
criterion of character, and His teachings our rule of life- 
blood-bought, holy sanctified and sublime. 

Itwasonceasign of ignominy, disgrace and shame, but 
being bathed in the blood of the lowly Nazarene, it has 
been transformed into a symbol of FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. 
It inspired the Crusaders of the Middle Ages in their peri- 
lous efforts to rescue the Holy Land from the heath ern Turks; 
and is today being used to rally the forces of Christianity 
against the ever increasing hordes of anti-Christ and the 
^principles of pure Americanism. 

/ We have added the fire to signify that M CHRIST IS THE 
I LIGHT OF THE WORLD". As light drives away the dark- 
\ ness and gloom, so a knowledge of the truth dispels igno- 
rance and superstition. ■ As fire purifies gold, silver and 
precious stones, but destroys the dross, wood, hay and 
stubble; so by the fire of Calvary's cross we mean to puri- 
fy and cleanse our virtues by burning out our vices with the 
fireof HIS SWORD. Who can look upon this sublime symbol, 
or sit in its sacred, holy light without being inspired with 
a holy desire and determination to be a better man? "BY 
THIS $IGNWE CONQUER." 

Ttti flAG 

This old flag, purchased by the blood and suftering of

can liberties. It is the symbol of the Constitution of 
the UNITED STATES of AMERICA, free speech, free press, 
free schools, freedom of worship, and all CONSTITUTION 
AL LAWS, BOTH STATE AND NATIONAL.; 

Its RED is the BLOOD of American heroes that stained 
a hundred battlefields, if* WHITE symbolizes the PURITY

ERICAN HOMES. Its. BLUE is bur o patch of America's 

unclouded sky, snatched from the diamond-studded canopy 

that bends over our native land. Its STARS represent an 

aggregation of UNDEFEATEDSTATES bound together in on 

inseparable union. 

"Its red is the red of the sunset's evening glow, 

Its white is the white of the winter's driven snow; 

Its blue Is the blue of the ocean, sea and sky, 

Its stars, the states of o union THAT MUST NOT DIE. " 

It has never been trailed in the dust, trampled in the 
mud or defeated in battle. It has never led a retreat or 
been hauled down at the command of any enemy. It is the 
greatest and most glorious flag that every floated in a breeze 
or waved over land or sea. It was purchased by the sacri- 
fice and blood and we have most SACREDLY VOWED that 
we will uphold and defend ir with our sacred honor, our 
property, our blood and our lives. May we ever be true to 
our VOW. Under its fluttering folds, as It floats In the 
gentile breeze in every Klavern, the U.S. Klans, Knights 
of the Ku Klux Klan will forever defend the principles of 
a pure Americanism, and thus perpetuate the sacredmernory 
of our venerable and heroic dead. 

Who can stand under these Stars and Stripes, remem- 
bering the sacred traditions that entwine about its holy 
past, without feeling that sublime patriotism that inspired 
our nobk si res fo die for OUR OWN, OUR NATIVE LAND? 

THE SWORD 

This unsheathed sword of steel is a symbol of law en- 
forcement. It represents the military, or enforcement 
powers of our government from the president down to the 
constable. Its presence on our sacred altar signifies that 
we, as an organization, are sol idly behind every enforce- 
ment officer in the land, to help, aid, and assist in the 
PROPER PERFORMANCE of their LEGAL duties. We stand 
unconditionally and unqualifiedly for the fust and impartial 
enforcement of the law, and for the defense and protection 
of all rights and privileges of all citizens alike. 

This SWORD also signifies that we ore set for the de- 
fense of our Flag and all that it symbolizes against the a- 
ttack and invasion of every foreign power, government, 
sect, ruler or people in the whole world. We believe in 
AMERICA FOR AMERICANS, and are sworn to defend It 
by all justifiable means and methods, from any encroach- 
ment whatever. This SWORD Is a constant reminder of our 
obligation to defend our country and enforce its laws, 
through DULY CONSTITUTED authorities and justifiable 
means and methods. May we wield it wisely and well in 
defense of our COUNTRY, OUR HOMES, OUR FLAG, 
OUR LIBERTIES AND HUMANITY.

precious and far more significant than all the sacred oils 
of the ancients" is a symbol of the purity of life and the 
unityof purpose. With thisdivinely distilled fluid we have 
been dedicated and set apart, in body, in mind, in spirit 
and in life, to the sacred, sublime and holy principles of 
Klankraft. In this dedicatory service we are solemnly ad- 
monished to keep our character as transparent and as clear 
and clean as the liquid in this glass. A drop of ink of 
blood in this crystal fluid will have the same effect as sin 
in our lives. May we keep our record clear and trans- 
parent free from the sinstains of evil and wrong doing. 
As water is useful to human life, so may we as Klansmen , 
be useful to humanity. As drops of water mingle and inter- 
mingle, thus becoming one solid mass, may we, as Klans- 
men become so united, each with the other, that we will 
become one sol id mass, or one body In Klankraft. Thus we 
see the water is a beautiful symbol of unity, usefulness and 
purity. Who can fail to learn from these drops of water, 
the lesson of real Klanishness, and of brotherhood in a 
common service to mankind? 

THE ROBE 

"THE distinguishing marks of a Klansman ore not found 
in the fiber of his garment, or in his social, political or 
financial standing; but they are spiritual, viz: a chivalric 
head, a compassionate heart, a prudent tongue and a 
courageous will; all devoted and consecrated to our -coun- 
try, our homes, our Klan and each other. 

We use the robe to signify that we do not judge men by 
the clothes they wear, and to conceal the difference In 
our clothing as well as our personality. There are no rich 
or poor, high or low, in Klankraft. As we look upon a 
body of Klansmen robed in white we are forcibly reminded 
that they are on a common level. By this means we also 
help to conceal our identity, which is an essential prin- 
ciple of Klankraft. 

This white robe isolso a symbol of the robe of righteous- 
ness to be worn by the saints in the land of YET-TO-COME. 
The age apostle, a prisoner on the Island of Patmos, peep- 
ed into the portals of the Great Beyond, an6 caught a 
glimpse of that saints, robed in white, "Which was the 
righteousness of Christ," Taking Christ as our criterion of 
character, and endeavoring to follow His teachings, Klans- 
men wear this white robe to signify that they desire to put 
on that white robe which is the righteousness of Christ, 
in that Empire Invisible, that lies out beyond the vale of 
death where there wi 1 1 be no mare parting ond no more tears, 
"A lying scoundrel may wrap his disgraceful frame in the 
sacred folds of a Klansmcn'srobe and deceive the very e- 
lect, but ONLY A KLANSMAN POSSESES A KLANS- 
MAN'S HEART and a KLANSMAN'S SOUL. " Therefore, 
as we seek to cover here our filthy rage and imperfect 
lives with the robe of a Klansman, may we through the

grace of God and by following HIS CHRIST, be able to 
hide the scars and stains of sin with the righteousness of 
CHRIST when westand before HIS GREAT WHITE THRONE, 

mum 

That hated hood, the terror of every evil force in the 
land, how they cry, "take off the hood. " But they don't 
know what they say. They do not understand why we wear 
it or what it means, "if they only knewl " 

In the first place It helps to conceal our membership. 
The secret of our power lies in the secrecy of our member- 
ship. We are a great secret organization to aid the officers 
of the law and we can do our best wprk when we are not 
known to the public. Bythismeanswe see and hear every- 
thing. We know the evil forces but they do not know us. 
By our secret membership we gather thousands into the 
meshes of the law that would otherwise escape. 

It is also a symbol of UNSELFISHNESS. With the hood 
we hide our individuality and sink ourselves into the sea 
of Klankraft. Not as individuals but as Klansmen, "WE 
SACRIFICE TO SERVE." Our motto is, "NON SILBA SED 
AN THAR —not for self but for others. "Therefore, we hide 
self behind the hood that we may be unselfish in our ser- 
vice. 

Who can look upon c multitude of white robed Klans- 
men without thinking of the equality and unselfishness of 
that throng of white robed saints in the GLORY LAND? 
May the God of Heaven, Who looks not upon the outward 
appearance but upon the heart, find every Klansman wor- 
thy of the robe and hood he wears. Then when we "DO 
THE THINGS WE TEACH" and "LIVE THE LIVES WE 
PREACH, "theHHeof KlansmanwiH be the most honorable 
title among men. 

Thus with our symbols we seek to emphasize and im- 
press the sacred, sublime and holy principles of Klankraft. 
WITH GOD AS OUR FATHER, CHRIST AS OUR CRITER- 
ION, THE BIBLE AS OUR GUIDE, THE CROSS AS OUR 
INSPIRATION, ANDTHE FUG AS OUR PROTECTION,

IDEALS OF A KLANSMAN 

In the crisis of today, we have at our command 
the strength, the courage and inspiration which lay 
in *he four great faiths of our founding fathers — 
faith in God — faith in ourselves — faith in our 
fellowman — faith in our freedom, 

Our great Nation was founded upon these faiths. 
The patriots who signed the Constitution, men and 
women who braved the prairie, the forests and the 
mountains to pioneer our great Nation, they lived and 
died by those great faiths. 

It is our children's birthright — ours to hand on 
to them and to their children. 

It is not enough merely to declare our faiths. We 
must give them life and meaning — by words — by 
our works — in our daily lives. 



WE THE KLAN BELIEVE: 

"We believe in God and the tenets of the 
Christian religion, and that a Godless nation cannot 
long prosper. 

The Christian religion is founded on the teaching 
of Jesus Christ. An infidel or a person who rejects 
Jesus Christ and His teachings, cannot be a true 
Klansman. And the nation that rejects God and 
His word is sure to reap calamity of some kind. 

"We believe that a church that is not founded on 
the principles of morality and justice is a mockery 
to God and man. 

There are churches, so-called, that do not require 
a high standard of morality and Justice from their 
membership. Men who accept the teachings of such 
churches cannot be Klansmen, in the true sense of 
the word. The genuine Christian is both moral and 
Just. 

"We believe that any church that does not have 
the welfare of the common people at heart is 
unworthy. 

Any church that Is founded on the principles 
set forth in the teaching of Jesus Christ has the 
welfare of all the people at heart. There is no class 
distinction, no subjection of the masses by a favored 
few, as has been the case for centuries in Mexico 
and other Romanized countries. 

We believe in the eternal separation of the 
church and state: 



;«is 



TUN I'KNKNNT l»AV Kll KlillX KNAN MOVEMENT 



"Roman Catholicism teaches the union of church 
and state, with the church controlling the state, 

The Constitution of the United States declares 
that the church and state shall forever be separate. 
"The church has its function, which is spiritual, and 
the state its function, which is temporal. Each has 
its place, and while they should work In harmony, 
they "should be separate. 

"We hold no allegiance to any foreign govern- 
ment, emperor, king, pope, or any other foreign 
political or religious power/' 

Every Roman Catholic holds allegiance to the 
Pope of Rome, and Catholicism teaches that this 
a jlegiancejs sjjjgericr jo his allegiance to hi s count ry. 

We believe in justTaws and liberty: ~~ 

By just laws is meant laws that apply equally to 
all, rich and poor, educated, men and women. 
Liberty does not mean license, as many seem to 
think, it does not mean to do as one pleases, regard- 
less of others: it means that in the exercise of our 
privilege, the welfare of others and of society at large 
must be considered, 

"We hold allegiance to the Stars and Stripes 
next to our allegiance to the Almighty God: God 
should be honored and obeyed above all: but next 
to God "we should hold allegiance to the Stars and 
Stripes, which is the emblem of our liberties. 

"We believe in the upholding of the Constitution 
of these United States." 

By upholding the Constitution, is meant the 
whole Constitution, anyone who violates one clause 
of the Constitution, would as quickly break every 
other one if it served his purpose to do so. 

"We believe that our free public school system 
is the corner-stone of good government, and that 
those who are seeking to destroy it are enemies of 
our Republic and are unworthy of citizenship to 
our Republic. 

"Ignorance, superstition, immorality, and crime 
go hand in hand.*** "Destroy our schools and the 
rule of our country will be placed in the hands of 
the few, as is the case where there are no public 
schools. 

"There are enemies within our gates who are 
trying to break down our system, which would put 
more stress on church dogma than general education, 
the result would be the Ignorant masses controlled 
by the educated few. 



HE PHEISENT day mi ku<\ KLAN Movnmnnt 



m) 



We believe in freedom of speech: By this is 
meant the right of any citizen to express an opinion 
on any subject, either publicly or privately, so long 
as no other person's private character is assailed. 
Until the arising of the Knights of the Ku Klux 
Klan, this right was denied American citizens in 
many of our cities and towns. 

"We believe in a free press, uncontrolled by 
political or religious sects." 

The press should be free to spread news without 
coloring it to suit any person or sect; But such is 
not the case, scarcely a newspaper anywhere dares 
to publish the truth; the whole truth and nothing 
but the truth. The press is largely controlled by the 
Roman Catholic priesthood and Judaism, and as a 
result the great masses of people are fed on 
propaganda instead of true facts. When an article 
is read in either a newspaper of magazine, one does 
not know but what there is a sinster motive back of 
it. And a paper that publishes nothing but the 
truth can hardly exist. 

p We believe in law and order: In other words, 
the Klan believes in. keeping the laws and in enforc- 
ing the laws. Many accusations have been brought 
against the Klan as law-breakers. These accusations 
against the order are purely newspaper propaganda. 
So far we have not heard of a single instance where 
the Klan, by an official act, has violated any law. 

"We believe in white supremacy: 
**> The Klan believes v that America is a white man's 
country, and should be governed by white men. 
Yet the Klan is not anti-Negro, it is the Negro's 
friend. The Klan is eternally opposed to the mixing 
of the white and the colored races. Our creed: Let 
the white man remain whits, the black man black, 
the yellow man yellow, the brown man brown, and 
the red man red. God drew the color line, and man 
should so let it remain, read Acts 17j 26^,if you please. 

We believe in the protection of our pure woman- 
hood, the home, the church, our public school system, 
our Constitution, and our American way of life. 

This is a stand for the purity of the home, for 
morality, for the protection of our mothers, our 
sisters, our wives, our daughters, against the white- 
slaver, the home-wrecker, the libertine. And to live 
up to this principle a Klansman must keep himself 
pure and above reproach. He must treat other 
women as he would have those of his own household 
treated.

"We do not believe in mob violence, but we do 
believe that laws should be enacted to prevent the 
cause of mob violence. 

Deaths by mob violence have fallen off very 
materially since the advent of the Klan, The Klan 
believes in law-enforcement, and if a person has 
committed a crime the law should take its course. 

"We believe in a closer relationship of capital 
and labor: 

And that the leadership of the American labor 
movement be white American born with a knowledge 
of American customs and principles. 

Instead of being antagonistic one towards the 
other, capital and labor should work in harmony, 
this would be the case if men observed the teaching 
of Christ in His word, and if they would observe 
the teachings embodied in the Klan motto: Non 
Silba Sed Anthar" — (Not for self but for others.) 

"We believe in limitation of foreign immigration: 

No nation can absorb an unlimited number of 
foreigners and retain its national integrity and 
traditions. Immigration should be controlled by the 
nation which the immigrants are entering. The 
nation should be judge as to whom it will receive. 

The traditions of America have well-nigh been 
buried under the avalanche of foreign ideas and 
ideals. 

"But for the arising of the Knights of the Ku 
KIux Klan, they would now have been but a memory 
in some parts of our country. 

We are native born American citizens, and we 
believe our rights in this country are superior to 
those of foreigners. 

The Klan believes in England for Englishmen, 
France for Frenchmen, Italy for Italians, and Am- 
erica for Americans: Is there anything objectionable 
in this? The Klan is not anti-Catholic, anti-Jew, 
Anti-Negro, anti-foreign, the Klan is pro-Protestant, 
and pro-American. 

"The Klan does not oppose the foreigner who 
comes to our shores and be6omes an American citizen, 
and an American at heart, but the Klan does oppose 
those who come here to drag America down to the 
level of the priest-ridden countries of Southern 
Europe, while lioarding"" up good American dollars 
and living under the protection of American laws. 

"We believe that the Supreme Court was in 
error when it attempted to legislate an act which 
would in effect, if adhered to, nullify the sovereignty 



THE PRESENT l>AY KU KIAJX KLAN MOVEMENT 

of all states, and it is our purpose to seek by. legal 
means the reversal of the United States Supreme 
Court. 
^f "We believe that the NA.A.C.P. is a subversive 
organization, and is infiltrated with Communistic 
idealogies and should be abolished by legal means. 

All true Klansmen and Klanswomen stand to- 
gether on these American principles and will stake 
their lives on the perpetuation and protection of 
same. 

"We the Klan will never allow out blood bought 
liberties to be crucified on a Roman cross: and we 
wili not yield to the integration of white and Negro 
races in our schools, or anywhere else. 

"We will follow the teachings of the Bible, and 
not the unwise and one-sided rulings of the 0. S. 
Supreme Court which is not in keeping with the 
Constitution of the United States of America.
